Great Museum with microscopic details for engineering about ships, planes other technical equipments like old telephone units etc. The relevant self demos are available at places. Very Big Museums, require minimum 5 to 6 hrs to see it. It took me 1 hr in line to purchase the tickets. Cafe and toilet are available inside the Museum. A must visit.

While this is undoubtedly a huge edifice to the exploration and achievements of science, full to the brim with fabulous, often rare artefacts, it is an awful museum. It harks back to musty trudging school trips circa 1974, and its cavernous scale amplifies this effect ad infinitum. The sprawling museum complex is a nightmare to navigate. Once in, you are...

A lot of different technical and artesan/art things. Levers and buttons to play with and be amazed. Only some exhibitions had full texts in English.

Once we understood how many different topics we could explore, we were thrilled. Granted, there was simply not enough time to see everything to detail. If you're tired and hungry, you can always go to the restaurant/cafeteria they have inside the building, even thought they don't have options for every diet. However, as a foreigner, I found difficult to learn... More

I only had a few hours in Munich before my train out and didn't have time to go inside the museum, but even a coffee in the café and a look around the gift shop hints at what delights would await you inside. I was led along the river to the museum and was really pleased to see the domes... More

The museum is in a well maintained early last century building located on an island of the river isar.Public transport by S-Bahn stations Isartor and Rosenheimer Platz or tram station Zweibrueckenstrasse enable a convenient arrival. There seem to be some refurbishment works so the ticketing is being done in a container like place in the center of the square in... More

We used to visit the museum when I was younger - this was my first time back in at least 20 years! This museum just never disappoints in any way - great exhibits, great explanations and always something new around the next corner! I will definitely not wait another 20 years to return this time!

The Deutsches Museum is the world's largest science and technology museum. Overall impressions: they need audio tours, they need way more English descriptions, and they need to update some. I went late in the day, intending to cover a couple of high-interest items. First on my list was the Mining section. I was impressed with the extent to which they... More
